Jaguars | Cecil Shorts likely game-time decision
Thu, 17 Oct 2013 14:07:09 -0700
Jacksonville Jaguars WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) will likely be a game-time decision against the San Diego Chargers in Week 7. Also, WR Ace Sanders (concussion) hasn't practiced all week and is unlikely to play. The swelling in Shorts' shoulder has subsided, but he's still dealing with some pain. "I ran around today in walk-through and felt pretty good," Shorts said. "It's going to hurt. So we'll see how it goes. No decision yet but I'm excited about my chances." Shorts was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 17, and head coach Gus Bradley said he won't practice Friday, Oct. 18.
Shorts will be tested Sunday morning to see if he'll go, and it'll likely come down to pain tolerance. With Sanders also out, Mike Brown is likely to see his playing time increase dramatically, but not enough to consider starting him. Look for other options and prepare to be without Shorts.
